Timeline Radio with Clenece Hills (interviews on Lawrence KS history by a Gilchrist descendant)

We are happy to report a successful reunion in Lawrence KS on September 14, 2002. Around 75 people gathered to celebrate our common roots as descendants of Andrew Bryson Gilchrist (1848-1919) and his wife Mary Catherine (Dunn) Gilchrist (1849-1939). Selected pictures of the event are available at gilchrist_photos-Reunion.htm.

The Gilchrist family history website plus narrative history is now available on a CD-ROM. This will provide a permanent home for this information and will in fact be the only way to access these Gilchrist files after the website is eventually removed from the Internet.

To order a CD-ROM, please send $5.00 cash or check to T. E. Roberts, 3428 Riviera Dr, Sarasota FL 34232. Be sure to specify whether you want the CD-ROM in WINDOWS or MACINTOSH format.
